Foreword
foRewoRd
The first water reservoirs in Saxony were built as
early as 500 years ago. The mining industry was
booming. Man-made trenches supplied the mines
with water, where it was primarily used for washing
ore and in hammer mills. This led to such things
as the water storage network for mining (Revier-
wasserlaufanstalt) in Freiberg and the Galgenteich
reservoir system in Altenberg.
Industrialization came to Saxony at the end of the
19th century. The population grew – and with it
the need for water. Many dams arose from this
demand. Building development became especially
concentrated in the river valleys, forcing people
more and more to protect themselves and their
property from floods. Such things as flood control
reservoirs were constructed for this purpose.
Next to North Rhine-Westphalia, Saxony has the
most dams in Germany. Its 23 drinking water dams
are able to bridge extended dry periods. Saxony also
has 33 process water dams as well as more than
80 additional reservoirs. In order to ensure effective
operation and management of the Free State’s
facilities, the State Reservoir Administration of
Saxony was founded in 1992 as the first public
enterprise in Saxony. Since 1994 the State
Reservoir Administration of Saxony has also
overseen maintenance of the state’s rivers,
streams and flood protection dykes.
Since the flood of August 2002, flood protection
in Saxony has enjoyed an especially high priority.
After the flood, the State Reservoir Administration
of Saxony was faced with the challenge of repairing
18,000 cases of damage to more than 3,000 kilome-
ters of Order I watercourses and 12,000 kilometers
of Order II watercourses as well as about 130 levee
breaches. This enormous project is well into the
advanced stages. Concurrently, flood protection
concepts are being implemented. This is a job that
will surely span across two decades to be continued
by the following generation.
Ulrich Kraus
Managing Director
The State Reservoir Administration of Saxony was
founded in 1992 as the first public enterprise in the
Free State of Saxony. It is a part of the Saxon State
Ministry for Environment and Agriculture and carries
out numerous sovereign duties. These include raw
water supply, watercourse maintenance and flood
protection. The duties of the State Reservoir
Administration of Saxony are defined in the Saxon
Water Ordinance. The State Reservoir Administration
of Saxony is provided a budget by the Saxon state
government to perform these duties. Income from
the regional water suppliers covers the costs for
raw water supply. The State Reservoir Administration
of Saxony employs around 700 people.

STewaRdShip of Saxony’S waTeRS
Raw water supply
Almost half of Saxony’s drinking water comes from
reservoirs. The State Reservoir Administration of
Saxony operates 23 drinking water dams with an
overall storage capacity of 236 million cubic meters.
It is responsible for the planning, construction and
maintenance of all state dams providing water for
drinking and processing. Many of Saxony’s dams
are linked together through a network system.
If one reservoir experiences a shortage, the raw
water can be supplied to the waterworks through
a system of pipes, galleries, rivers and streams,
ditches and ponds from another reservoir. Thus
the water supply can be balanced during prolonged
dry periods.
The 33 process water dams are used for low water
aggradation and provide water for industrial use.
Many of the process water reservoirs are also used
for tourism. Some of the reservoirs such as Pöhl,
Pirk, Malter and Bautzen are designated EU bathing
spots. Dams shape the landscape and, in many
cases, serve as a form of nature conservation.
Watercourse maintenance
An essential task of the State Reservoir Admi-
nistration of Saxony is the constant upkeep of the
Order I watercourses and transboundary waters.
This includes in particular the development and
maintenance of the banks and embankments,
state-owned flood protection dykes and hydro-
engineering facilities.
The European Water Framework Directive (WFD)
states that all rivers must allow for the passage
of migratory fish. In keeping with this, The State
Reservoir Administration of Saxony has implemen-
ted a consistency program. This includes keeping
watercourses which are populated by migratory
fish free of weirs and installing fish ladders.

Flood protection
The flood of August 2002 caused around 9,400
cases of damage to Order I watercourses and about
8,900 cases of damage to Order II watercourses.
The State Reservoir Administration of Saxony
began cleanup operations shortly after the flood
subsided. Flood protection concepts were imme-
diately established for all state-owned watercourses
in Saxony. The concepts contain 1,600 flood protec-
tion measures. These were prioritized so that the
State Reservoir Administration of Saxony could
begin right away with the most urgent construction
projects. It will take several decades to implement
all of the measures and will extend across genera-
tions. In order to inform all land owners of the
effects a flood could have on their property, the
State Reservoir Administration of Saxony has
prepared danger zone maps. They are displayed in
the communities and are updated as necessary.
Flood protection is especially effective wherever the
rivers’ courses and banks are natural, thus leading to
an increased use of bioengineering designs. In this
way the State Reservoir Administration of Saxony –
wherever possible – secures the banks and embank-
ments with trees and bushes adapted to the sur-
roundings as well as enclosed areas of grass. The
natural river courses formed by the flood will remain
intact outside of residential and commercial areas.
Bioengineering is, however, limited in heavily deve-
loped locations and in hilly areas.
Nearly all of the dams belonging to the State Reser-
voir Administration of Saxony also function as flood
protection. Most of the dams have a fixed flood
control storage reserved exclusively for collecting
flood water. In cases where additional flooding is
likely, the flood control storages can be enlarged
to a certain extent.
~
Carlsfeld dam
The State Reservoir administration
of Saxony is responsible for:
~ 137 dams including pre-dams and basins
with about 600 million cubic meters of
overall storage capacity,
~ 4 raw water transfer lines for drinking
water purposes,
~ 1 process water transfer line system,
~ 1 man-made trench and water gallery system,
~ 186 weirs,
~ around 400 additional water management
facilities of the Free State of Saxony
such as water drawing machines, pumping
stations or water gauges,
~ around 3,000 km of Order I rivers and streams,
~ around 300 km of transboundary waters to
Poland and the Czech Republic,
~ around 650 km of flood protection dykes.

The State Reservoir Administration of Saxony has
its headquarters in Pirna not far from Dresden.
It is run as a public enterprise by a managing
director, who is supported by an administrative
board. He also receives advice and counsel from
a committee of experts. The headquarters is
home to the offices of the director, administration
and finance as well as engineering. It focuses
on inter-departmental projects:
~ Department 1: Administration/Finance
Department 1 handles all essential operatio-
nal and personnel management activities.
This includes the departments of Administra-
tion and Personnel, Accounting and Property,
Finance, Information and Communication
and the Hydraulic Engineering Examining
Authority. The Independent Examining
Authority ensures that projects of the State
Reservoir Administration of Saxony not
requiring approval are implemented
according to the rules and guidelines.
~ Department 2: Engineering
Department 2 fulfills the essential technical
duties. The department for Water Quantity,
for example, deals in part with jobs per-
taining to hydrology and reservoir manage-
ment. The department for Water Quality
deals with the quality of the water in the
reservoirs and their feeders. The department
for Engineering Inspection handles the
safety inspection of all structures, and the
department for Hydraulic Engineering is
responsible for the planning and expert
supervision of construction projects.

Water has been dammed in the district adminis-
tered by the Freiberger Mulde/Zschopau works
since the 16th century for silver ore mining. In the
19th century the rising industry demanded water.
A then-revolutionary system of drinking water
reservoirs was created in the mountain region
of the Mittleres Erzgebirge. This historical legacy
is still used today.
The Freiberger Mulde/Zschopau works are in Lenge-
feld in the mountain region of the Mittleres Erzge-
birge. They cover the administrative districts of
Annaberg, Freiberg, Mittleres Erzgebirge, Mittweida
and Stollberg as well as the city of Chemnitz. They
are subdivided into the dam management divisions
Neunzehnhain/Einsiedel, Revierwasserlaufanstalt
Freiberg, Lichtenberg, Rauschenbach, Cranzahl
and Saidenbach as well as the river management
divisions Annaberg, Chemnitz and Dörnthal.

The Elbaue/Mulde/Untere Weiße Elster works, with
headquarters in Rötha near Leipzig, operates in the
administrative districts Delitzsch, Döbeln, Leipziger
Land, Muldentalkreis, Torgau-Oschatz and the city
of Leipzig. The works include the dam management
divisions Windischleuba/Borna, Witznitz/Rötha/
Sermuth, Jahna-Döllnitz and Schömbach as well
as the river management divisions Bad Düben,
Borna, Grimma, Leipzig and Torgau.
In the 1960s, a system was constructed in the south
of Leipzig to supply the local industries with process
water and to serve as flood protection. The Wyhra-
Pleiße dam and storage system still has the same
functions today. It consists of two dams, four water
reservoirs and two flood control storages as well as
the Sermuth pumping station with its water transfer
trough. In recent years, the works have assumed
numerous other flood protection facilities – for
example, in the Jahna river area.

comprehensive flood protection
for the city of Torgau
The flood of August 2002 made it all too clear that
the city of Torgau is highly vulnerable to floods. Im-
mediately afterwards, the State Reservoir Adminis-
tration of Saxony began to analyze the dykes and
develop a flood protection concept. It soon became
apparent that the dykes were permeable at several
locations and no longer met modern technological
standards. A thorough overhaul was necessary.
The city was also to receive two new traverse
dykes on the Weinske river.
Implementation of the flood protection measures
in Torgau began two years later. Renovation of
the dyke system from Glacis to Polbitz was also
completed in the same year. The dyke system
from Kranichau to Hafen Torgau and restoration
of the already existing Weinske dykes were comple-
ted in the following year. The dykes were raised
and widened, steep slopes leveled and dike support
paths built, among other modifications. Large parts
of Torgau and the surrounding area are now pro-
tected from the kind of flooding which statistically
occurs once every one hundred years (HQ100).
Construction of the new inland dyke on the Weinske
river was completed in September 2005. It protects
vital commercial and industrial facilities such as
the Torgau plate glass factory as well as several
residential areas. The remaining flood protection
measures were begun in 2006, for example
the construction of the second Weinske dyke.
This will primarily serve as flood protection for
the North of Torgau.

complex overhaul
of the klingenberg dam
The drinking water dam in Klingenberg in the moun-
tain region of the Erzgebirge operated uninterrupted
for almost 100 years. Now ”Dresden’s water glass”
must be completely renovated. The flood from
August 2002 left its mark as well. The spillways
received heavy damages and the pre-dam was
totally destroyed. Renovation of the Klingenberg
dam will include state-of-the-art technology. It
will receive a new inspection gallery, which will
be blasted into the masonry dam. Gauges such
as pendulum lines will be installed, allowing
measurements of any changes to the dam.
In order to empty the reservoir for renovation work,
a temporary water supply must be set up. The
Klingenberg dam, together with the Lehnmühle and
Rauschenbach dams, supplies the entire Weißeritz
26
district, the city of Freital and 60 percent of the city
of Dresden with drinking water. During construction
work, they will be supplied entirely from the Lehn-
mühle and Rauschenbach dams. In preparation
for this, a three-kilometer-long tunnel was drilled
through the rock to redirect the water past the
Klingenberg dam on its way to the waterworks.
After renovation work, the tunnel will be used as
a spillway. It can take up to 30,000 liters per second
and redirect them past the reservoir. Both the
gallery and the two million cubic meters of flood
control capacity will serve an important function
for the reservoir flood protection. The renovation
should be completed in 2011 and cost around
60 million euro.
